Something Scott wrote today reminded me today of one of my favorite quotes:
“There is no limit to what can be accomplished if it doesn’t matter who gets the credit.”
Versions of this quote are attributed to Emerson, Truman, John Wooden, and even former LDS Church President Harold B. Lee. Scott joins the lofty ranks of these folks by ending his description of the very interesting looking Free Learning with his emphatic assertion:
“See – I DON’T CARE if you use THIS site or SOME OTHER SITE. I just care that people ACCESS OPEN EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES.”
If everyone involved in the OER world had this opinion, we’d be much further down the path. Does this run counter to the popular thinking that each OER project should establish, promote, and protect its OER brand? Yes. Does that make it wrong? Absolutely not. You go, Scott. Spread the selflessness!!
